1910's Edwardian Sage-Green Beaded French Floral Lace Off-Shoulder Evening Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Undiminished by time, this antique garment still casts its seductive spell. An exceptional Edwardian gown made of fine french-lace over sage-green taffeta with sparkling beadwork. I love the slightly puffed off-shoulder bodice. The additional shoulder-straps are composed of pure jet-beads. The skirt has a stunning back-bustle and ruffle-hemline. Making a bold and dramatic fashion statement; this could have been worn in Downton Abbey at the end of WWI.
